ABOUT OUR FIRM

The world is slowly losing its uniqueness. Every year a bland, generic, conformity advances further into our built landscape. Driven by national chains, over-standardization, and a lack of imagination our cities are drifting towards a lowest common denominator. We feel it’s important to fight that trend whenever our pens touch paper.

We believe that every project should possess a sense of place; that it should tell a story. Drawing cues from the client, the environment, and materials, we craft timeless practical buildings.
